Dothan, AL (WTVY)-- Thieves broke into a building at Wiregrass Angel House and stole supplies used to groom that agency's therapy dogs.

“It's despicable,” Executive Director Shelly Linderman told WTVY.

Items stolen include a dryer, shampoo, brushes, clippers, ottoman and also Christmas decorations that had been stored.

“What kind of people would do something like this? This is wrong,” Linderman said.

Wiregrass Angel House, a non-profit agency that assists families of violent crime victims, has three therapy dogs---Cole, Mandy, and True.

Among other things, those animals provide comfort to children who testify in court cases.

The theft was discovered Tuesday morning.
